A 35-year-old female civil servant in Singapore, before the Ministry of Health officially released the number of new coronary pneumonia cases, first shared relevant information with others. She was arrested by the police on suspicion of conflict with official secret laws and computer abuse laws.

The police (April 23) said in a statement that the female civil servant shared WeChat data with others through the communication application WeChat several times, and opened a database storing coronary patient information without authorization without authorization.

The Ministry of Health generally releases the latest number of confirmed cases on the day at night, but some netizens said that some confirmed cases have been circulated on the morning of April 16th, and the number of new cases is suspected to be leaked.

The Ministry of Health said afterwards that it had been informed of the matter and had reported it to the police.
